Lovesac, baby lovesac...

I'll go ahead and apologize for the cheesiest blog title ever, but I just couldn't resist :)
For a while now we've been looking for some "soft seating" for Luke's little play area and after looking at Pottery Barn anywhere chairs (and then seeing the prices and throwing up in my mouth a little bit) I decided to look into other alternatives. I immediately thought of the Lovesac and started scouring the Internet for a deal. Have ya'll seen how crazy expensive these things are?!?! Like $700+ expensive! If you know me, you know that there was no way in HECK I was going to pay $700 for anything (ha!) but I managed to find it for a really good deal on Craigslist. So last Friday night my mom accompanied me to Frisco (because she's always afraid anytime I buy anything on Craigslist that I'm going to get abducted) to meet this really sweet family and buy their lovesac. I had seen some pictures, but was a little astounded at how HUGE it was and continued to be astounded as we drove home on 121 without being able to see anything (it took up the entire back of my jeep... floor to ceiling). After having to call my dad over to help me get it in the house and then wedging it through our front door, we have a new best friend... Yes, it is mildly reminiscent of college-life, but is that really a bad thing?!?!? I'm sure that if you're a decorator you're probably a little bit disgusted right now, but really, we have a giant corral set up in our dining room, so we're a little beyond common decorating sense right now anyway :) Function over form is kind of the name of the game.
It's unbelievably comfy - Luke love it, Dave loves it, I love it, my parents love it - we're considering getting rid of all our other furniture and just having a bunch of these (ha!) We're hoping that this will be around for a long time, providing not only a comfy place to sit in Luke's play area, but extra seating for when we're all watching a movie, etc., etc. To give you a general idea of it's size...
You don't have to admit it out loud, but deep down I know you want to sit in it. So next time you're over, feel free to flop down and enjoy. :)
